Sprint like a cheetah, run for miles like a horse or scamper like a dwarf mongoose. Whatever pace or distance you prefer, be sure to do it at the 35th annual race honoring Samson, the Milwaukee County Zoo's most famous great ape. The race, which takes place throughout the Zoo grounds, offers four routes for runners of all speeds: a 5K competitive run, 2-mile fun run and quarter-of-a-mile or 1-mile romp for children. Individuals can pre-register for $20. The children's romp is $10 per child. Team registration is $15 per person. Day-of registration is $25 per runner. Registration fee includes a long-sleeve T-shirt, Zoo admission and parking. Zoological Society memberships and gift certificates cannot be used for this Zoo fundraising event.
